Some Of Our Feedback

  • A fast-growing Biotech Company were struggling to find a Vice President, Global Regulatory Affairs and having engaged a major Executive Search firm in the USA had spent over 1 year looking for the right candidate without success. Within 8 weeks of requesting my help, we provided the company with 12 candidates, from which the ideal candidate was selected, who, over two years on, is still successfully operating within this role.

  • A leading Biopharma Company were looking for an Associate Director, Regulatory Strategy Team Lead for Emerging Markets, but had thus far failed to secure the right candidate. In fact, after 6 months of trying they’d only been able to secure an interview with one, less than ideal, candidate. Within 30 days of working with myself, a very suitable candidate was identified and started working for the company within 3 months. We provided the Biopharma Company with 11 excellent candidates to choose from.

  • A Pharmaceutical Company contacted me to find their new Head of Regulatory Affairs, to be based in a challenging location. Within 60 days of approaching me, after an intercontinental recruitment campaign, 6 candidates were identified and delivered. A suitable candidate was chosen and placed. The Company expressed their gratitude for having exceeded their expectations.
